Just For Today – in a world of confusion

‘In a world of confusion let the universe guide you’

When the world is full of confusion there is only one thing you can do, and that is let the universe guide you. That means looking to yourself for the answers – because we are the universe.

So many times we look outside of ourselves for the answers, because we think with our heads instead of our hearts. We should ask ourselves how do I feel, not what do I think. Our hearts are our truth centre, and our heads are the outside programmable parts of ourselves. Our heads get filled with nonsense, we watch the news, read the papers and believe that what we are seeing and reading is the truth. You won’t find the truth in other peoples perception and opinion, because most of the time an agenda is at play.

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth resides in all of us. We were born with the truth, we just need to get quiet, go within, and ask our heart space, what is real and what isn’t.

The world is a confusing place right now, but if you let it the universe will guide you. It will show you the way, the path to take, it will lead you to the truth about yourself and about the world that we live in. It will show you the illusion of it all, the great big illusion we call life. It all starts by being guided by your heart, and only your heart. Feel it, really feel it. Awaken your soul, really feel what it is telling you. The truth of all you are, of all you can be and more starts in your heart. In this world of confusion the universe is guiding you to the truth – can you feel it………

Just For Today – Lockdown Tuesday

‘Gratitude is at the heart of our souls’

It’s funny the things you take for granted. We live our lives and we don’t really think about things much. I know that sometimes I can get complacent about things and just ride along with life. But today I am feeling an immense sense of gratitude.

It’s Tuesday and I generally go food shopping on a Tuesday, which I did today. I was all overcome with excitement at the prospect of going out and buying my weeks shopping. And I realised for the last month or so I have been getting really excited just to go shopping. Lockdown Tuesday has taken on a whole new meaning.

I am in Ireland at the moment and here we are only supposed to venture out for exercise within 2km of your house. So the prospect of being able to go further afield to do the weekly shop seems really naughty and exciting. I suppose it feels like being let out of the cage and feeling what freedom feels like once a week. So my shopping was bought and brought home and it felt like Christmas.

It made me realise how easily we become conditioned to things. And that is a frightening thought, we mustn’t become conditioned to being restricted. We must always stand up and fight for our freedoms, because without freedom we really do become caged animals. It is up to us adults to make sure that our children, grandchildren and our great grandchildren are afforded the same freedoms that we have enjoyed in our lives.

It is a beautiful day here again. I am filled with gratitude for the sun that warms my face, and gratitude for Lockdown Tuesday with it’s abundance of healthy and nutritious food.

Just For Today

‘Will our lives be as before, or will our consciousness be ever expanded’

You do wonder where this will all lead. I wonder if our lives will ever be the same again? When you see the way we have to queue up at the supermarket like little ants or robots, all waiting for the nod that it is our turn to walk up and down the aisles collecting our essential food items. How quickly we have conformed to the narrative of social distancing.

It is very sad to see. How I want to go back to my normal way of shopping. With me there is no method in the madness. I randomly go from one end of the shop to the other, crisscrossing my way with no uniformity, I don’t do uniformity. I am sick of this China inspired way of living. Next we will all be told how to walk down the street, stomping our legs up and down while we swing our arms by our sides. We will be told it is an updated form of social distancing and it saves lives ‘walk like a prat, do as you are told, stay home, save lives’

Aside from that it has been another beautiful day, a bit colder, but the sun has shone. I am biding my time right now, waiting for travel restrictions to be lifted so I can travel, I am counting the days. I know that life is about experiences, but this is one experience I am not enjoying. I do wonder how many lies are being told. Peoples lives are being turned upside down and for what. I look at the politicians and all I see is liars, everyone of them. But I do believe in the end goodness always wins and the truth always emerges. People will always seek out the truth. That is why we have intuition and gut feeling it is our barometer to the truth. You can’t hide from the truth because the truth always comes knocking.

Success

‘To be successful you only have to be you’

What is success? What does it mean to be successful? What does it mean to you? Do you want to be successful at all costs? Are you willing to walk all over others to get it, and then when you have achieved it – then what? Do you stand on your pedestal surveying the people and the world below you?

Society tells us we have to be successful. To portray an image to the world. Societal success means lots of money and possessions . You become validated and achieve status and standing in the world – you have arrived. Societal success always comes at a price.

There is nothing wrong in being successful, it is the type of success that matters. To be morally successful in a world driven by fear and greed is not easy. It means going against the grain, and not buying into society’s flawed ideals of what society tells you, who you should be, and what you should be.

Moral success is not measured by wealth or possessions, it is measured by the impact you have on the world and on other human beings, and on the impact you have on yourself. It is about revealing your true self, and your unique gifts and abilities to the world. Are you a positive influence, do you treat others and yourself with kindness, love, and compassion? Do you think and lead with your heart? Do you bring your gifts and abilities to the world in a positive and loving way? Do you serve others or are you here to just serve yourself? The impact you have on another person is one of the most important aspects of our lives here, it really is the only currency that matters.

How many of us believe that only money brings success, and means you are successful. To know what success means to you, ask yourself why you do something. It is for the money, the adulation, for the praise, or do you do it from your heart to give something wonderful to the world. Making heart based decisions about what you want to achieve in this world, may seem overly sentimental. We are taught to always make decisions from our minds, devoid of emotions. Because from the moment we are born, we are viewed as commodities, and an income stream. We are only supposed to be here to strive for bigger and better things.

In a society that is built on fear, appearances matter. You must buy into having a successful job, and all the trappings, otherwise you are viewed as a failure. It doesn’t matter how you get there, who you destroy and discard to achieve societal success, but get there you must. The question is, is it really worth it, do you ever really achieve success that way? Aren’t you forever chasing the carrot on the stick, never ever catching it? Does that kind of life ever bring fulfilment and contentment?

We have a situation at the moment being played out in the media involving Meghan Markle and Harry. Two individuals who are intent on being successful and wealthy at any cost. Both intent on destroying each others families to get it. Is that really success, to gain so much, but to cause immeasurable pain to others to achieve it. And as this situation continues to play out over the coming months and years, what price will they pay, to themselves and to their relationship, in their pursuit of societal success?

What if you just stopped for a moment and really thought about life. What if you started to make heart based decisions. Would you view your life and yourself differently? Can you imagine a society, a world, not built on fear and greed, but built on love. All of us making heart based decisions about ourselves and our lives. Each of us here to bring our unique gifts and talents to the world. We are all here for path and purpose, and we are all here to be morally successful in our own right.

Do you care how you achieve your success? Do you want to achieve societal success or moral success? One day in the distant future we will all leave this world, we will all leave a legacy, an imprint of our time here. The decisions and the actions we take can and will influence people for decades to come. What will your legacy be……….?

Be your own inspiration…..

‘I inspire myself with self belief’

2020 is going to be a wonderful year, full of inspiration and self belief. It is going to be a year where you make more inspired decisions, because you believe in yourself, more than you ever have before. The life you want to create always starts with you. When you have unwavering belief in yourself, you decide what you want for yourself and your life.

To become your own inspiration, you have to believe in yourself, respect yourself, and trust that only you know what is best for you. You don’t let other people’s opinions bring you down. You don’t let other people’s belief systems and ideologies dictate to you what kind of life you live. You are a free thinker, not a sheep thinker.

You are your own inspiration because you get to know yourself. You work on the parts of you that require change. You are not afraid of change, you positively embrace it, with a knowing that the greatest version of you is yet to come.

You are your own inspiration because you value yourself, and you know that you are worthy of all the blessings and love that the universe can bestow on you, and you accept it all with gratitude.

When you believe in yourself your mindset changes. You don’t let what has gone before drag you down. You learn from it and are grateful for the many lessons you have been taught.

When you are an inspiration to yourself you show the world who you really are. And you make no excuses for being authentically you.

2020 is a new dawn, a new age of inspiration and truth, when you believe you achieve. You are your own inspiration, you always were, and you always will be.
